Working Through The Pandemic


Many of us feel like we don’ have much control of our own freedom and choices during this pandemic, myself included.

Most of us are waiting on unemployment checks that are at least a month overdue and are not sure how we’re going to survive next month because of the threat of the closers still looming over us well into May. Our community as a whole are dealing with social distancing, being told to stay indoors, wear gloves, wear facemasks, and sanitize, sanitize, sanitize.

There is a limited supply of toilet paper at the grocery stores if you’re able to get to the store at the right time. If you can’t get to the store at the right time, you’re out of luck and have to rely on the tree outside:) Just kidding, I had to drive out of town to find toilet paper, but I didn’t run out. Would someone please explain to me why toilet paper is such a hot commodity?

I ended up making my own yogurt a few days ago. I was having a hard time finding plain yogurt that wasn’t 2% or fat-free. Both my cat and I eat it every day, and my cat will scream at me all day long if she doesn’t have her yogurt first thing in the morning. Yes, she’s spoiled, but it’s a healthy treat, and her 13-year-old tummy loves the pro-biotics.

There are always solutions to problems. The toilet paper just seems to the one that sticks out for me.

And then there are all of the other limits that have been placed over us so we can stay safe and healthy.

During this time, I have had several different thoughts on this pandemic ranging from negatives to positives that bounce around in my mind sometimes. It’s only natural. I’d prefer to stay on the positive side of life, but it hasn’t been an easy task considering the news, fear, anxiety, and scarcity of money, food, and toilet paper.

I have decided to keep my Distant Reiki services. Yes, I had to close my doors to in-house-clients, maybe it’s for the better. Times are changing, and the world is not going to be the same once the coronavirus dies out. Who knows, maybe more businesses will choose to keep their employees working on a remote basis only. It’s hard to tell while we are in the thick of things. As a matter of fact, most of my services will be changing along with my last name.

I’m reclaiming my birth name, Thompson, and have recently started that process. This means fees and a court date. I’m curious to know if that will be a skype thing or if I’ll actually be standing in front of a judge:) Once I get my name changed, I will no longer be writing under a Penn name, my author status will be true to the name on my books. My middle name is Lynn.

There are a lot of significant changes happening in my life right now, along with many other people’s lives, so my posts will more than likely still be scattered.

I am going to leave you with a fun process out of one of my favorite books by Ester and Jerry Hicks, The Magical Creation Box (see picture above.)

Stay safe and Healthy!!

I choose to use a small box because I am in the process of “clearing the clutter” or, as I like to say, “simplifying my life,” but feel free to use what resonates with you. The box you chose must resonate with you to amplify the energy within it, so when you pull it out, play with it, and add to it, the box will continuously bring you joy.

I added the picture to mine because I love angels!

Get a box, big or small, and one that resonates with you.

Write at the top of the box “Whatever is contained in this box–IS!”

Then start adding pictures of what brings you joy to your box. These pictures can come from the internet, magazines, books you own, etc…

“The more things you add to your box, the more the Universe will deliver to you other ideas that match them. And the more ideas you drop into your box, the more your desire is focused, the more alive you will feel–for this energy flowing through you is what life is.”

“If you have little or no resistance–in other words, if you have no doubt you can achieve these things, the experience will feel invigorating to you. The more you clip, the better you will feel, and you will be able to see the evidence of these things moving closer and closer into your experience. Doors will begin to open to make it possible for many of these things to easily come in right now.”

Until next time…




Change Is In The Air

The last few days I’ve watched the world change and I’ve come to realize this is the first time I’ve actually seen a pandemic; I had the corona virus before it hit the States pandemic form. (If you missed that post you can find it under Zombieland and Taxes:) And I’m really curious about why toilet paper has been such a big commodity with this pandemic?

I’ve been to several different places and found that not everyone is living in fear of their death. It makes my heart sing just knowing there are optimistic people out there thriving in this environment. I’ve been to the Co-op where tensions were high, avoided the grocery store due to rude behavior over food and toilet paper, and toured a couple of restaurants. I must say the restaurants have varied the most. A few have closed down due to the virus and several have stayed open. A few have gone overboard on their cleaning habits and a few have taken the necessary precautions to meet their customers needs, but all of the open restaurants I have been to have stepped up to the plate to make their customers feel safe.

My town looks like a sleepy ghost town right now with most people locked in there houses? Or are they on the trails hiking? I took a drive today to get some fresh spring air and low and behold most of our trails are occupied. Mother nature is being appreciated, the birds are singing, it’s a beautiful spring day and people are taking quality down time. It is amazing and a blessing to see in the midst of all this craziness.

Life continues, and with that I have been making some changes of my own- in my life and in my business.
